Always happy to find Omnipollo beers locally. This collaboration is no exception. Nose has wonderful notes of citrus, pineapple and mango. Full bodied juicy flavors with soft mouth-feel. Not overly sweet, nicely balanced, with mild bitterness on the finish. Would not have guessed it was 10% ABV.
Who doesn’t love dolphin sparkles? Yay! It falls somewhere between a NE hazy IPA and west coast IPA. Smooth and juicy but with with a bit more bitterness on the finish.
Flavor-wise, an unfiltered double IPA with piney and resinous hop characteristics and malty base with no residual sweetness. Discretion Brewing’s annual release in celebration of independence day. With numbers like 8.9% and 74 IBU… what more could you ask for? Oddly worded on the can. Double hazy implies double the haze, unlike a hazy double […]
Whoa…a delish double IPA from Toppling Goliath. The pale malt body lets the nice hop characteristics shine through. Pleasant lingering bitterness. Hmm…no ABV on can? Would guess 8%-ish.
…a 9% ABV old school, malty but balanced, double IPA from Decatur, GA’s, Three Taverns Craft Brewery for me, and Parrot Vibes, a 4.8% ABV POG tart ale from Oakland, CA’s Temescal Brewing, that she wishes was 9%, for the lady.
A piney, resinous and malty 8% DIPA from Fort Collins, CO’s Odell Brewing. The maltly base has an underlying sweetness giving it characteristics similar to a barleywine, and English barleywine where hop bitterness is more subdued.
Yum. Nice juicy hop nose. Flavor is sweeter than expected, with little to no bitterness. 32oz went down waaay to fast. All that and clocked in at 8.5% ABV. What’s not to love.
…at home; and who doesn’t want some fun, mandatory or not. The beer, a nice 9.3% double IPA from the fine folks at Hess Brewings. Piney and citrusy nose, and the flavor doesn’t disappoint. Yum.
Going deep into the ‘ol beer drawer. Piney and resinous, medium malt body with good lingering hop bitterness. Quite impressed by how well this has held up. I would have thought it would be more barleywine-ish, with softening hop profiles. Can time-stamped 6-Years Down, 11/01/18, so upwards of 9.3 years in dog beers.
…to find that Stone Brewings 23rd anniversary beer is an IPA. I’m sure the words on the back of the bottle would tell the story of the “uncanny anni”, but don’t want to dig into the recycle bin, and, truth be told…I don’t really care. The beer itself is ok. Resinous hoppy nose, malty base […]
